I'd be happy to help if we get the chance to stumble on one another online. You may want to check the Codex codex-of-the-damned.org and maybe get on board on a Discord server to get in touch with some players if you want to try online play: discord.com/invite/x65VmyNPGD

Hello All!

I bought an Assamite Starter Deck many years ago at the Origins game convention in Columbus, Ohio, USA but I have never actually played V:TES. I'm a bit older than the gamers I used to meet at Origins, and really did not feel comfortable playing with people much younger than myself. For years I tried to find V:TES players closer to my own age, but no luck. It doesn't help that I'm an introvert with a very busy RL.

Anyway, while I don't know any other gamers in northeast Ohio, for years I have read and re-read the V:TES rules. I am also a big fan of the Dark Ages: Vampire novels from White Wolf.

At this point in my life (I'm close to retirement age and have other things on my mind) it's probably too late to think about playing V:TES face-to-face. But I would love to immerse myself in the game by reading about the gaming experiences of other people.

I wish V:TES had solitaire rules!

Central Ohio has active playgroups, if you're interested. The social aspect of the game is one of the most unique things about the experience, in my opinion.
The game flows better than the rules make it seem. I sat on a Cam edition starter for years (as a fan of VtM) before getting tired of mtg and getting into vtes. I reccomend playing with live humans if the drive isn't too much to get down here.
At any rate, welcome aboard.

Antonin, don't worry about the age, majority of us VTES players tend to be old farts so you'll fit right in...

We have an active playgroup in central Ohio (Newark/Heath). We play weekly and have tournaments every 2-3 months. I'm 59, and our playgroup ranges in age from 20 to 60. We'd be happy to have you join us and will have a presence at Origins again this year.

That is good to know!

A few years ago I went to a nearby comic book store looking for a group I could play Magic with. The store clerk was very friendly, but when I was looking nervously at the group of teenagers sitting at the gaming table, he said, "Hey! No problem! You're a kid at heart!"

I hated to tell him that no, I'm not a kid at heart. I'm just a middle-aged man with a wife and a full-time job who enjoys science fiction and fantasy novels. Nothing against all the happy teens at the comic book store and Origins playing card games, but the idea of joining them just felt strange.

Maybe someday I will play V:TES face to face with others, but for now I am happy to enjoy the game through the questions and stories of others here. I hope some of you will write about your gaming sessions!
